House Democrats Tee Up Their Own Comprehensive Immigration Bill

Rate this Entry
I don't have the text yet (and am not sure it's even out), but I can tell you what is basically in the House Democrats' immigration bill just released with a big press briefing. In short, it's the Senate bill minus the Corker-Hoeven border surge amendment (the $40 billion overkill provision that calls for a border patrol agent every 1000 feet along the border) and plus the unanimously approved House Homeland Security Committee border bill.

The Democrats are trying to sell this as a bipartisan bill and it is. The Senate bill was the product of the bipartisan Gang of Eight and half of the Senate's Republicans voted for it. And the border security language is now the product of the Republican controlled House.

But don't expect the Republicans to take this bill up - at least not anytime soon. Later this month after the budget distractions are over, the House Republicans are planning to start moving their own individual bills. If they fail, then who knows what's possible. But for now, I think the Democrats' bill is designed to keep pressure on the Republicans to keep moving on immigration reform.
